NSE Nifty 50 would continue its positive advance on Friday as it reviews technical charts despite signals of stress from global markets, analysts told Capital.com.

“A decisive break above 16,700 in the Nifty would fuel further momentum towards 16,900. We maintain our positive bias and recommend focusing on sectors and themes that are gaining ground,” said Ajit Mishra, vice-president. President (Research) at Religare Broking.

According to Osho Krishan, Senior Analyst (Technical and Derivative Research) at Angel One: “The technical structure is encouraging as the market has been swinging in a tight range for the past couple of trading sessions and is seeing buying interest at the lower levels. Also, from a technical perspective, the index formed a strong “bullish engulfing” pattern on the expiry day, which is an intriguing factor for bulls.”

“As for the levels, the unfilled gap on the downside of the 16,370-16,430 odd area has already proven itself in providing strong demand and should provide immediate support. While on the contrary, 16,740 are likely to act as immediate resistance, and any decisive breach above the same could trigger further momentum in the period ahead,” Krishan added.

“After a lackluster start, markets rebounded strongly on renewed optimism as investors swallowed up recently beaten information technology and oil & gas stocks. In fact, Indian stocks outperformed other Asian peers, which mostly ended in the red. Technically, after a muted open, the Nifty took support near 16450 and reversed the trend,” said Shrikant Chouhan, Head of Research on stocks (retail) at Kotak Securities.

“A promising reversal formation on the intraday charts and a long bullish candle on the daily charts indicate a new uptrend from current levels. For day traders, 16,550 would act as a trend-deciding level, above which the Nifty could rise as high as 16,720. In case of further upside, the index could climb as high as 16,800. On the other hand, below 16,550 the uptrend would be vulnerable and could falter to 16,450,” Chouhan added.
